    does this boat have a DESS Lanyard?? Or a safety tether??

    It would have to be something that both motors have in common..

    Two different motors, two different ign systems - one shut down circuit..

    These motors are very sensitive to voltage drop. Make sure to check battery voltage and load test. Every 787 I've had would loose spark if the voltage was low even though they would turn over.

    I also agree with voltage. Good friend if mine went back and forth troubleshooting and it was battery related. He also cleaned the battery terminals.

    check spark with plugs pulled. Check electric box connection. Pray it is .t the mpem as they are no longer available and used one command big bucks. Check mpem fuses . Check for chewage or rat signs in the bilge.
